3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing reproduction December 18, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love the work of Charles Dickens and A Christmas Carol is a particular favorite of mine so I immediately ordered this book. I was very disappointed with the size and quality of the reproductions of the original manuscript. The reproductions are small and so unclear as to be almost illegible. The reproductions of the illustrations are similarly poor and reproduced only in black & white inside (they are reproduced in color, slightly larger than postage stamps, on the front and back cover. Best thing about this expensive book is the typed transcript of the manuscript facsimile. The book is strictly for the most ardent of collectors of Dickens and A Christmas Carol in particular.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read January 17, 2011
Format:Paperback
A delightful novel. A good read for any day of the year. It will remind one to be kind and giving all the time. Plus, Dickens is so humorous and entertaining. I read it on my NOOK. I must alert the reader that Dickens' work is available for free downloading at gutenberg.org. Many of the old classics are. Their copyrights have expired and they are part of the public domain now.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Christmas Carol Collector Must Have! August 12, 2013
By Barbara
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is my favorite book and I collect every copy I can. It is a lovely edition and I appreciate the original notations of Charles Dickens included. Although the print may be a bit small, it is a great addition to my collection. I recommend it highly as a keepsake!

4.0 out of 5 stars original manuscript size was not a problem to me March 18, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Another customer has criticized the size of the images of the original manuscript, but I did not find this to be a problem. One can read it, but most customers are going to read the typeset manuscript and refer only occasionally to the original. I found it so very interesting to see the original manuscript; the corrections; the revised portions seemed to give me some insight into Dickens' thought process.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible March 24, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Terrible. We sent it back. Looked like a cheap first draft typewriter version. No pictures and no images of the original manuscript, there was a place for them, but they weren't there. No value in this at all!!!

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This version of the book is a little too small to read any of the writings or scribblings that Charles Dickens had.
